Gen. McClellan.

No better illustration is needed of the fickleness and worthlessness of Yankee public opinion than the besotted idolatry with which the Young Napoleon was once regarded throughout the United States, and the utter contempt into which he has now fallen. His elaborate defence of his conduct only provokes the jeers and sarcasm of those who but yesterday were loudest in his praise and worshipped him as a demigod. Unfortunate McClellan! Ridiculous Yankee nation!
